I was in Jacksonville Fla for the week. I tried to check in with web TV in the hotel, but it really sucked. Didn't get very far. There were some other interesting features enabled by my $15 fee though ;D
Surgery is Wednesday. Assuming I come out of the general anasthetic, I'll shoot a one handed report the next day!
Ahh, now I get to say this to someone else - Glad to have you back buddy, take it easy and get lots of rest! Funny I bought a bunch of MC rags while I was on bedrest too. Get the British ones, trust me !
Well, I'm off the pain killers and just taking the anti-inflamatories. I'm always aware of the shoulder, but I wouldn't say it generally hurts. I have most of my range of motion with some pain at the extremes. I wouldn't want to throw a baseball yet, but I'm getting by with all the essential functions of the day.
I can go a lot of the day without the sling. I'm driving (being off the drugs helps there). I'm thinking how soon I can ride the Monster! I'm itching to get on her since some nice weather is coming up. I know my wife's gonna have a fit unless I get green-lighted by the ortho and doctors don't generally like motorcycles anyway.....
I feel like I could ride right now, though not a full-day kind of ride; I get tired too easily. But I could ride in to work and maybe tool around a little. We'll see.
Bottom line, one week post-op and I feel like I could pretty much get on with my life again. I think it's gonna be worth it
Don, want to brave a slow going, take-it-easy ride this weekend? I'll come out to you.
Let me/us know. I'm just dying to get on my bike with the weather like it is right now. I think either way, I'll be riding somewhere this weekend.
Can't do a weekend ride. My parents are visiting from Oregon and we haven't seen them for a few years! Gotta stick around the casa. If we have decent weather next weekend, maybe we can put in a little run on Sunday. Anything can happen with the weather any time. Could get a few warm days. Could dump 3' of snow. Ya never know.
I rode in to work today! Felt good except for the backpack straps digging into my shoulder. Stupid friggin' 8.5 lb laptop! I'll solve that by not taking any more work home! Told my dad this morning "now I'm going to p!ss my wife and maybe mom off. I'm riding the motorcycle to work!"
Hmmm. Da parents.
Well, If the weather keeps up like this, it'll be overdue for one of my famous hookey days, so let me know.
I'll call Rachel and see what she's up to this weekend. Monsters are better in herds ;D
That's amazing/awesome that you're already riding your bike man. Didn't you have surgery a week ago? Jeesh.
Will wonders ever cease.
Keep in tune and let me know if we're going to blow this work thing and have fun on the Monsters...
npt - No problem...
PM me and I'll send you my tel #. We could hook up for a ride in VT/NH/MA...I'm down.
Maybe I can still pull Rachel in to this thing..she's one wild and grazy gal.
I'm out in the sticks in Northampton, but I ride anywhere ;D
I'll check back in after lunch...
Thanx for the heads up. Now if I could just figure how the HECK to get on the CD-ROM list, I'd see...
In the end though, I'm the same. I'd rather be riding on the last day of sunny mild weather than watching a game in a smokey bar surrounded by beautiful big boobied babes.. Wait..what? big boobs! Weehooo!!!!
